Abstract
  • This report describes environment and health in London using data that are publicly available. The authors have drawn on current international knowledge of the links between environment and health. The key points they make are that inner London is worse off than outer London, with higher unemployment, poorer housing, more air pollution and higher death rates; smoking, alcohol, poor nutrition, lack of exercise and excess car use contribute to common diseases including heart disease, stroke and cancer; there are health concerns related to water quality, noise nuisance, refuse disposal and transport of nuclear waste; and that London needs major economic changes to be environmentally sustainable.
